Arthur Lloyd Cowieson and Edna Mary Proctor had three sons, Jack, Edward, and Bruce. To which do you belong. I am reserching my 6-greats grandfather, Robert Jones, born in Denbighshire, Wales, in about1680. He came to Philadelphia County Pennsylvania and married Ann Coulston, who had come with her father, William Coulston from Morland Yorkshire, England. They were both Quakers. Robert and Ann Coulston Jones had 13 children, I am a descendant of the tenth, Josiah.

Their first child William married Rebecca Trotter and had 5 children. William and Rebecca's third child was Amey or Amy. She was born in Philadelphia (after 1784, Montgomery) County, PA and married Joseph Collins, who was born about 1850 in Goshen, Chester County PA. They had a daughter and a son, Joseph, born 17 Mar 1782. Joseph moved to Canada and in Whitchurch, York, Ontario, Canda on 1 Jan 1810, married Anna Bogart, born 19 Jun 1788 in Muncey, Lycoming PA. Her mother had been born in Canada and so her parents had also moved there. Joesph and Anna Bogart Collins had a daughter and 2 sons. Their daughter, Amy, born in Uxbridge Ontario, Canada on 25 Jan 1812 married Robert Weddell in Uxbridge on 17 Oct 1830. They had 8 children. Their daughter, Elizabeth, married Peter B. Belfry, born 10 May 1836. Their son, Robet Henry Belfry, married Margaret Cowieson, and had a son Eberton Roy Cowieson,born 1888 died 1974. Their daughter, Amy Catherine Belfry, born East Gwillimbury, York North, Ontario, Canada on 26 Sep 1865, married John Burr Cowieson and had 4 sons, Stanley B., Arthur Lloyd, Robert Angus, and Harold E.

At just this point I found your posting on Genealogy and hasten to make your acquaintence, because I am sure we are related, even if distantly. I grew up in Philadelphia PA, but now live in New Jersey. I hope you will receive this message and that we can help one another fill up any missing relatives that we share.

Best regards,

Mary Flounders Arnett
